Discussion:
The two pictures below demonstrate the calculations from Trial 1 at 0° and Trial 1 at 45°. In this experiment we did five separate shots from the cannon at 0°, and 3 separate shots at 45°. We determined the average distance of the shots from each angle by using a meter stick. We were then able to calculate the velocity of the shots by dividing the time from distance. After getting the results, the distance from the shots fired at 45° had a greater distance from the shots fired at 0° horizontally. This is because as the ball which is fired increases, the height increases. As the height increases, the time it takes for the ball to hit the ground increases and the range (distance) is greater.

Conclusion:
One source of error comes from when we shot the cannon from the ground at a...

The purpose of Lab Assignment 1 was to analyze projectilemotion. In doing so, we determined the initial velocity of the ball shot horizontally from the spring loaded projectile launcher. Also, we verified the angle at which the projection of the ball would produce a maximum...

...Abstract
In this lab experiment the range equation will be used to calculate range of the launched rocket, initial velocity and distance traveled. Various projectiles will be tested at various angles and table heights for experiment one. Results will be compared to initial calculations. Despite human error and calculation error, the results still correlated with the hypothesis.

...ProjectileMotion
Purpose:
An object in a projectilemotion move horizontally with no acceleration and vertically with the gravitational acceleration at the same time. This experiment is to investigate projectilemotion using experiments, equations and comparing the expected and experimental data.
Procedure:
Case I:
Use formulas to find equation of horizontal Range (R) in a projectile...

...ProjectileMotion
You have probably watched a ball roll off a table and strike the floor. What determines where it will land? Could you predict where it will land? In this experiment, you will roll a ball down a ramp and determine the ball’s velocity with a pair of Photogates. You will use this information and your knowledge of physics to predict where the ball will land when it hits the floor.

...Title
ProjectileMotion
Abstract
A projectile was fired from atop an elevation and an angle. The initial velocity for each
firing was likely to be the same. The distance traveled in the horizontal direction was measured
for multiple firings of each trial, and the values were averaged. When the initial velocity for
each of these averages was calculated it was proved that the initial velocity was relatively ...

Abstract
The force of gravity is said to be a constant of 9.81 ms-2 (3). This can be proved by measuring the projectilemotion of a bouncy ball and plotting a ∆Vertical Velocity vs. Time graph, the gradient of which should equal the constant force (acceleration due to) of gravity. Our gradient value of 10.26±0.49 ms-2 is...

...Introduction: Good morning friends and classmates. Good morning, Sir. In this report, we will talk about the concept of ProjectileMotion. Now, for you to have a clearer concept of what you had in mind about this and before I give you the definition, I want to start with giving you an example. So, I want you guys to help me in this. (Draws on the board as she tells the story) So imagine that there is this tall, crazy guy on jersey no. (insert no....
